Coorg Wilderness Resort surprised me when I least expected it. I was patiently waiting to see if any of my winged visitors would pay me a visit. I was happy to spot this Malabar Barbet feeding on figs on the tree right next to my Suite. And then he paused to take a breather giving me the opportunity for some close portrait compositions.

Later that evening, I caught two White-cheeked Barbets fighting it out making it an amazing sighting. Unfortunately the light was not adequate for crisp pictures, I did manage a few record pictures to capture the experience.

We wrapped a lovely day of birding at Coorg Wilderness Resort, with this cool composition of Malabar Barbet waiting to head back to their roosting places before the sunset.
